? >> extraordinarily well, andrea. good afternoon. as a matter of fact, this issue is of vital importance to literally millions of people in the united states. we have to remember that for the past four years there have been a record number of deportations under the obama administration. record now 1.8 million people have been deported. the border is more secure than it's ever been in o'our recent history, and the fact of the matter is that something like this which deals with issues like the border, it deals with what to do with the broken legal immigration system, both sides agree that it's broken, but also deals in a humane matter with 11 million people who are here without their documents and who have been here for many years, many of them have children here, have grandchildren here and have contributed to this society and to this economy for many, many decades. this is something extremely well received. >> the politics of this, republicans as john mccain was the first to say yesterday, republicans have to deal with the facts of life here. now, ironically, if john mccain and lindsey graham and oth
be aryaning on immigration reform, but it's so tricky that president obama is expected to issue few if any ultimatums in las vegas. eight sfenators, four from each party unveiled their step toward an agreement. conservatives aren't happy with it rerks jekting it as a form of amnesty. lawmakers are said to be working on a plan of their own. white house correspondent brianna keilar is looking at it. >> reporter: in 2011 president obama went to the border town of el paso to press for comprehensive immigration reform. >> out of many, one. we define ourselves as a nation of immigrants. >> reporter: that went nowhere. now in a second term, the president is trying it again, heading to las vegas today to push for border security, a verification system for workers and punishment if they don't and the most significant and controversial part of the president's plan, a pathway to citizenship for undocumented immigrants. it includes registering with the government, undergoing background check, paying taxes and a penalty, and learning english. a solution has alluded past presidents including george w. b
with democrats and signature domestic policy issues and then 9/11 happened and the wars occurred. really, the nation polarized again, right versus left. i don't think we have come out of that. obama inherited that. but he talked about bridging that and governing in a way to bring right and left together. i happening the number-1 failure of president obama is not the economy. it's his failure to find a way to bring us all together. >> eric: chris, what about that? >> well, i think it's easy to put it on president obammasm the fact is, this has been building and arguably building for years. the division that we have between the parties. the issues are difficult. the solutions are more complex. it is not easy to find that compromise. it is easy to say that it's president obama's fault. i heard that from the previous president. but the reality is, you cannot dance with someone if they keep saying no. when you have a republican party that is divided amongst itself, in terms of where the country should go, how do you find that common ground that basically unites the country? it's extremely dif
the obama administration is focused on domestic issues, nation building and home. that's a tough task for the secretary to. lou: and the u.k., the foreign minister has a great sense of humor because he just a day after secretary clinton had testified to warn the u.k. citizens of the dangers of benghazi. that had to be -- somebody there had to be just laughing as the issue that warning. >> that is a pretty serious warning. lou: i understand the warning is, but the timing is incredible. >> just announced yet been gauzy is not a problem. i found those hearings is today just appalling. all the senators and congressmen should have asked for the tough questions. didn't. one after another they asked her about all the things that had gone before. she said for months the rate for those questions and should better than none of the park. what they fail to save her, why hasn't anybody gone after the people responsible for benghazi? the same people who are now doing the algerian attack, why have we not. lou: on december 201st there was this to say about the fact that the obama administration had n
the bipartisan plan. president obama is flying to nevada to push the issue there. there was a flash of the old straight talking john mccain today when he was asked why republicans are suddenly ready to compromise so much on immigration. >> one, as i have stated before elections, elections, the republican party is losing the support of our hispanic citizens. and we realize that there are many issues in which we think we are in agreement with our hispanic citizens. but this is a preeminent issue with those citizens. >> today's developments left one right-wing republican observer completely dumbfounded. >> if the democrats think their position on immigration, let's use that for example, is the right one, and if the democrats' position is what is getting all that support from hispanic voters, what i don't understand is why would the democrats want to give up some of those voters to the republicans? can somebody help me out here. >> i don't know, rush, sounds like you're beyond help, but i'll give it a try. what you are seeing is not a compromise on immigration. you are seeing republicans surrender
% of the hispanic vote to president obama, and literally after that, they started to talk about compromise on immigration. >> we have to get rid of the immigration issue altogether, it is simple for me to fix it. i think you control the border first, create a pathway for the people here, you don't say you have to go home. and that is a position that i have evolved on. because you know what? it has got to be resolved. >> and so today, immigration became the first order of business in the new congress for some republicans. >> first step in what will continue to be difficult, but achievable. and i don't think i have to remind anyone the last major attempt was over six years ago. now we will again attempt to commit the remaining resources needed to secure the border. modernize and streamline our current immigration system, and create a tough but fair path to citizenship for those here illegally. >> senator john mccain and three other republican senators, marco rubio, lindsey graham and jeff flake are now joining four democrats on a bipartisan plan to overhaul immigration laws that will estimat
for president. you want boating up and down on a figure. you were voting on issues and the dominant issue was obama and as a scare, the stimulus committee increase in spending, the expansion of the government. or to put it in a more abstract and grand was the difference between federal and state which was tilting more toward state. when the question is put that way, the country shows itself to be center-right country. had republicans been able to duplicate those conditions, that framework in 2012, they would have won. but it is not the same election. 2010 is almost purely ideological election. perhaps the most ideological since 1980. then you get to 2010, when you have a personality involved and you have a figure represents one side. romney is a good man. i like him. i think he is an honorable man, and i think he would have made an excellent president. but he was a bad candidate particularly in an election that could have been one had been an election about ideas and philosophy. i think it would have been easily won had been about ideas and philosophy. but he was not the math -- he was no
. let me go to you, mr. lapierre. president obama has issued 23 executive actions on gun violence. can you discuss the commonality between your organization, the nra, and the obama administration when it comes to finding ways to reduce gun violence? >> what we think works, he is what nra has done historically. we do more of which we put more money in. reese support of enforcing the laws on the books 100% of the time. that works. we have supported prison bill and spirit we have states like california where, more than any other state in the country, they send more inmates back in the street and more inmates back in jail for new crimes against their citizens than any other kind -- stayed in the nation. -- states in the nation. -- state in the nation. nra has always supported what worked. -- works. the innocent are being preyed upon. the statistics are numbing. the 911 calls are horrible. at the scene of the crime, it is the criminal and the victim. victims all over the country want to be able to protect themselves. this whole debate almost puts it in two different categories. if you are i
there will be the emphasis on the enforcement side, but i think that obama will spend some political capital on the issue of how these 11 million undocumented aliens can become on the path to citizenship. >> and as someone who kns that process, who knows the complicated paperwork, who knows the frustration of waiting for the bureaucracy, do you think it can be done, you can have a path to earned citizenship, which somebody comes forward, gets first a green card, legal status and then in line for citizenship. can that be done in a way that is fair or as fair as possible in the sense that if there is someone who has been waiting legally, will the people already in this country actually go to the back of the line? that's what a lot of people suspect won't happen. >> well, the senate proposal and president obama have both said they will go to the back of the line. that line in some instances is years long for family reunification. it is one of the reasons that employers have said over and over that we need a simplified streamlined immigration system so that persons can be hired legally. and have a legal path
. >>> it's one of the most controversial issues in america. and why this hour president obama announces his plan on immigration reform. i'm poppy harlow. roll it. >>> death defying and terrifying. why a tragic accident at the x games is raising eyebrows about the sport of extremes. >>> plus -- >> this 13-hour procedure was performed by a team of 16 plastic orthopedic and microvascular surgeons. >> a war vet becomes the seventh person in the country to have his arms replaced. >>> and hillary clinton's exit interview. this hour, cnn sits down with america's top diplomat and her final days as secretary of state. >>> hi, everyone. a dramatic report out of miami is focusing new attention on baseball. and that sport's ongoing battle against performance enhancing drugs. this in the news again. the miami new times newspaper has published the names of big league players allegedly connected to, of all things, an anti-aging clinic located in south florida. the paper says this follows their three-month investigation. one of the big names, folks, a-rod, alex rodriguez. just to be clear here, a-rod has i
unexpectedly tough talk by president obama last week on the issue of climate change. i want to start by showing our viewers what exactly the president had to say. >> we will respond to climate change knowing that the failure to do so would fail our children and future generations. some may deny the overwhelming judgment of science but none can avoid raging fires and crippling drought and more powerful storms. the path towards sustainable energy sources will be long and sometimes difficult. but america cannot resist this transition. we must lead it. we cannot seed to other nations the technology that will power new jobs and new industry, we must climbs it's promise. that's how we will maintain our economic vitality and our national treasure. a forrest in water ways, our crop land and snow cappedpeeks. that is how we will preserve our planet, command it to our god. that is what will lend meaning to the creed of fathers once declired. >> a lot of time spent on the issue of climate change in that speesh. was it a surprise to folks in the environmental community? >> i think they expected a shout out
, who you saw president obama paying tribute to at his inauguration this week, just as he did at his inauguration in 2009. it was not until world war ii was over in 194 that president harry truman issued an executive order to desegregate the united states armed forces by race. nonwhite service members had been there all along. they had just never been treated equally. president truman ordered that to change. and it was not easy, and it was not even, but it was 1948. and the military having an overt policy of desegregation as of 1948 was a groundbreaking thing, not just for the military, but for our country. and in that same year of racial integration, in 1948, it's pretty much long forgotten, but in that same year in 1948, the congress also passed the women's armed services integration act. 1948. there had been of course the wac, the women's army corps and the marine corps women's reserve there had been a coast guard women's reserve group. but in 1948, the year truman said the military would be racially intergraded, women would too. they wouldn't be in a lady's auxiliary to the unit,
's new issue. >> oldham. >> whatever. it features a wide ranging interview with president obama that's made a lot of news, man. chris, you know how to launch it, don't you, baby. that is good stuff. tell me what you're most surprised about what the president told you. >> for me personally it's just the tone. it's a brand new obama. i asked him about a new kind of politics and his answer was that institutional and form in the media have made it very difficult to deliver on that sort of grand promise four years -- >> isn't that ironic, democrats come in and i think they get a much freer pass to the white house than republicans but it always seems to be the democrats, the clintons and now barack obama that has this terrible relationship with the media. >> well, i mean -- is that fair? >> i think the media environment we live in in 2013 is different than it was ten years ago. we've all seen the demise of the night live news, people just follow the people that are in their corner on twitter. there is a different media environment. at the same time there were very high expectations in 2008
. a graphical representation that is made to look deliberately complex in order to scare you about that issue. this is called the organizational chart of the house democrats' health plan, otherwise known as obama care. this was put together by the house republicans back in the health reform debate days. look how complicated. isn't it awful? let's add more boxes and lines to make it seem even worse and more alienating. when that version was not scary enough, house republicans later put out a second draft. look at this one. a second obama care scare chart, with i don't know, 50% more rationing zones or something. be afraid! here is another scare chart. this is america's strategy, supposedly for winning the war in afghanistan. any questions? this chart was not originally created for scare purposes i don't think, but it was circulated to have that political effect once it was dug up. these are scare charts. and pro-immigration reform groups have used this same scare chart tactic. look right here. this shows a map of the current legal path to immigration in this country. this is how you legally be
this a top issue. joe, you remember that between the clinton and obama white houses, he worked in financial services. he's using the muscle of chicago's accounts to push two banks that are doing business with gun manufacturers to say either use your influence to get them to moderate how they sell their weapons or stop doing business with them. second, more visible player, gabby giffords, the former congresswoman shot in arizona and her husband, mark phillips, say they're going to be much more aggressive about lobbying on capitol hill. they have a group with a super pac arm that's going to surf that public opinion you were just pointing to. and they describe themselves as gun-owning moderates. they're from the mountain west. but obviously have incredible moral authority on the gun issue. they're going on start using that more and more. mark phillips, her husband, tells "politico" in an interview that they're going to do whatever they can to build support for this legislation, even though as the moment house republicans are turning up their noses at it. >> hey, mike, also last night, speaking
are less of both. >> right. he nailed it. you have to think about privacy issues at the beginning. they are not an afterthought. i think we were the first apartment in the obama administration to have a presidentially appointed privacy officer. we have a large privacy office. they are at the table helping us. it is very practical stuff. we collect information, who can we share it with, how long, for what purpose? can it be purpose their privacy implications about that. a number of other examples of how we embed privacy considerations into the work we do. >> our country is strong because we protect civil liberties and a perfect security. not because they protect one of them and not the other. >> these are our values. that is correct. >> final question during the are both in a field dominated by men -- final question. we are both in a field dominated by men. you are the first secretary of homeland security who happens to be a woman. what and do you haev -- what advice tdo do you have for young women getting into the security field? get at it. it is interesting, challenging, and you
previously supported the paycheck fairness act and the administration points out consistently obama care made health care more affordable to women in general. he will no doubt support women's issues and expanded equality. the question is, where will it come in the list of priorities? i should also point out, we're reporting silva matthews bruell, a woman who held several senior posts in the clinton administration is the obama administration's leading contender to run the omb. wolf. >> office of management and budget. thank you, jessica yellin for that. >>> indicakate bouldin is here. >> he is pushing to ban more than 150 types of assault style weapons. joe johns is looking into this it goes without saying, the vice president is facing a very uphill battle. >> absolutely true. talking gun control or as the white house likes to call it gun safety. he went to richmond, the heart of gun country, to talk about it the backers of the newly proposed assault ban are trying to come up with some messaging that could badly gin up support in congress. in an uphill battle for the assault weapons ban, both
. this is one of the most controversial issues. of course, a lot of republicans don't like this idea of creating a path to citizenship. president obama has worked to get that done. the big question is how can can the white house and members of congress work together to make that happen? on friday president obama met with members of the congressional hispanic caucus here at the white house. we also have a list of some of the senators who attended that meeting. they include senator robert menendez and javier becerra and ruben hinojosa and several others and president obama trying to get their input before he hits to road to travel to las vegas before making this large announcement. prior to the tragedy in newtown, immigration was going to be president obama's top priority during this second term. so we expect him on tuesday and the days following to really push his agenda with great force. craig? >> nbc's kristen walker from 1600 pennsylvania avenue on this saturday. thank you, ma'am. we'll check if with you later. >> thanks. >>> paul ryan is the latest republican offering his prescription for a g
is the meta thing hanging over this entire issue. >> do you think that's right, that the obama administration had a road to damascus moment where they came to learn to embrace this, or was it that they got this political pushback from lindsey graham and republicans -- >> i think that there is a certain amount of truth. i wouldn't call it a road to damascus moment. there's a certain amount of truth that the obama administration acquiesced to the late bush administration after the courts got done dismantling the more aggressive policies of the bush administration. they said we're going to keep some of this stuff. that's what happened at the national archives speech in 2009. but i think guantanamo is not an essential facility. we can safely house terrorists inside the united states no matter how dangerous they are. what happened with guantanamo is that the administration bungle eld t ed the politics and they decided they weren't going to prioritize this and it wasn't worth what they felt was losing other aspects of their agenda and democrats in congress got scared and basically said no, we're no
across a host of issues. you want stories that ratify and reinforce your point, but when barack obama starts talking about real people who really cannot afford health insurance, you have to have something to say, or else you will lose. >> unfortunately, i got the throat-slitting motion from the staff here. >> that's ok. bill is a sleep over here. >> thanks very much.

in history, i suppose. this issue of numbers, how many times, how many times they were they waterboarded, this arose in 2004. it was by the obama administration when he came into office. it depends on the way you count them. the actual applications lasted matter of seconds. if you think he was left at 83 sessions, i do not want to say that what these guys went through was not very aggressive. it simply, those numbers are just way out of bounds and had been misinterpreted in subsequent years to as to the particular organizations. >> one of the startling statistics is that there are journalists who have submitted to waterboarding to show how bad it is rather than terrorists. >> for the record, that was not me. i was not that into my legal research. tens of thousands of american servicemen have been waterboarded. right now the only people we still waterboard are american people, americans in uniform. waterboarding continues, it is not the terrorists. let's turn to the question of the role that detainees played in the hunt for osama bin laden. if you can walk through the role and how it affe
